I think that even if you like Silva, you had to be unimpressed with that fight. Sonnen had a great game plan and executed it for 23 minutes. At least now there's no doubt who the best pound for pound fighter is.
Also, I really liked the Fitch fight. You know that if the crowd's booing, then he's winning...
Lastly, that Big Country sure can take a punch...
Unimpressed with the fight? Maybe. But I think if you like Silva, you have to be impressed with the victory. It's victories like that one that define champions. He was completely and utterly dominated the entire fight, Sonnen just pushed Silva around, took him down when he wanted, and smothered him the entire fight. On the ground he constantly berated him, trying to pound a hole through his face. Still, Silva found a way to win. I'm not a Silva fan at all, I can't stand the guy, but he earned a little more respect for that victory.
I only got to see a portion of Big Country's fight...yeah he took some massive blows.
